# Years 7 & 8 Curriculum - Mathematics

Students will study various units of work over KS3. Students will be tested regularly during KS3 and set changes may take place on the basis of these assessment results. Each assessment is cumulative and content from previous units will also be assessed.

More able students will be expected to study these topics at a deeper level and should be able to problem solve and reason to attain mastery.

Students are required to bring to every lesson a full Maths set including a scientific calculator. We recommend the Casio GT plus. These are available in the student resource shop.
